Dear 8th Grade Families~
We are so #YETIexcited to celebrate your student’s accomplishments in middle school here at BVIS. The goal of this communication is to ensure you are informed and prepared for our upcoming Continuation events.
This year, we are looking to make continuation week EXTRA special for our scholars! Due to COVID, our current 8th graders have not had the “typical” middle school experience and have missed out on celebrations, field trips and experiential learning opportunities. Ms. Papstein, our 8th grade Team Lead, has started a Go Fund Me fundraiser to help cover out of pocket costs for our scholars. Please click on the link below if you are able to donate. Then share this link with all your families and friends!
